Newcastle United goalkeeper Shay Given's groin injury doesn't have management panicking over cover for the Irishman.

Fraser Forster has been outstanding for Adam Sadler's reserve-team since the New Year and the coach told the Evening Chronicle: "Forster has been playing very well and catching the eye.

"That he has even been saving efforts from players who have shot when the flag has gone up for offside is testament to his concentration levels and focus."
